I chose this book as my jewellery making friend works with clay and I wanted to try it.
There are 22 projects in this book and from start to the finished item Silver Clay Workshop covers every step of the process.
I adored the Button Cuff Links, but each of the projects are stunning, From beginner to advanced the guide is easy to follow. Each piece has a list of needed items and is full of useful hints and tips. The Glossary at the bag is particularly interesting, it explains the terminology and names of useful tools and techniques.
The picture are in full colour and is perfect for both the visual and method follower.
I hope to create my first piece very soon, so watch this space.
